In watching the Video Clip of Outdoor Kitchen Design Tips I was impressed with the thoroughness of what to look and plan for when designing outdoor kitchen space. It also put me in the mood to fire up my grill!
I absolutely loved the idea of having a water source and prep area. That would be great! I've certainly had my fair share of going in and out of the house while grilling, and it's really a pain at times. They have several great tips. I really appreciate the information about storage as well!

Kitchen Gadgets That Practically Make Dinner For You--How could I not click this article and go in and read it? I am one of the many working women in our society. I am also one who has a commute which is a little over 1/2 hour when the stars are aligned and all is right with the world. Getting home a little after 6 p.m. is not when I want to START making dinner, so I am all over this article to see what can help me.
Some of these devices are quite interesting. I'll not opt for the one that helps with Sushi. Not my favorite cuppa tea. However, as much as I use my crockpot, number 19 sounds absolutely amazing! Take a look, let me know what you think. You can read the entire article by clicking here.

Holy Cow! This was such an awesome find! I've watched the 11 minute video several times. I'm going to list the video here, and then I will have a link to the article. This is about figuring out how to do pressure canning outside and save heating the house up as well as the propane or electric!
The articles explains the video, or goes along with the video, in more depth actually. Being someone who cans things, this is pretty impressive. I can certainly see where it would save fuel tremendously! He goes through the steps of how to build the "rocket stove" and how to keep the heat going. Pretty cool, you can read the full article here if you like.

This short video has some great tips to help set up your kitchen. Some of the tips I knew, but some I had not really thought about before. I do use a knife block, so if you do, give yourself points for that!
The one problem I have is that I do not have any space to the left of my stove, the refrigerator is there, so that tip won't really work for me. Perhaps I should find a video on kitchen remodeling and show that one to my hubby? Enjoy!

If you have ever experienced a kitchen fire, it is certainly a scary thing! This video has some great tips for kitchen fire safety. I remember waking up to my smoke alarm going off, and my 16 year old coming into my bedroom. He said.. the house is full of smoke! What happened was he was trying to cook french fries on the stove in oil. When he finally put a frozen fry in, the house filled with smoke. I asked him how hot he had gotten the oil. His response was, well, I waited for it to boil before I put in the fry. Seriously. Now he is a great cook, but I don't know if he makes french fries on the stove top or not?
Please remember to be careful. Great tips in this video, especially about keeping the lids handy in case a pan fire breaks out. Hopefully my oldest won't be reading my blog.
